Dead Gaze is the project of one Cole Furlow, who hails from Mississippi where he is a member of the Cats Purring Collective. Furlow has been recording under the Dead Gaze moniker since 2009, releasing various cassettes and 7"s on labels like Fire Talk and Clan Destine. The project was a staple on Altered Zones and we are proud to premiere a stream of Furlow's eponymous debut for FatCat, a compilation of various tracks from his extensive back catalogue. For those not familiar, Furlow places a huge emphasis on texture in his work as Dead Gaze, with every song being deliberately overprocessed to create a near-palpable crunch. Behind the production are catchy, Americana-influenced guitar, synth melodies, and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics, with each song attempting "to capture a very memorable moment," in Furlow's words.
